Sheffield United vs Leeds United: Predictions
It’ll be blood and thunder on Sunday afternoon as fierce rivals Sheffield United and Leeds United contest a Yorkshire derby at Bramall Lane.
This is the first time these two neighbours have faced each other in the top flight since March 1994 and although the fixture has been out of the Premier League limelight, it has still served up its fair share of drama and controversy over the years.
The Blades head into the clash on the back of two consecutive defeats to open the new Premier League season — losing 2-0 at home to Wolves and 1-0 away at Aston Villa — while they also crashed out of the EFL Cup at the hands of Burnley. Not the start they envisaged after finishing ninth in 2019/20.
Meanwhile, Marcelo Bielsa’s side will be puffing out their chests after beating Fulham 4-3 last time out to seal their first Premier League win in 16 years. Just rewards after their impressive performance in a 4-3 reverse against defending champions Liverpool on the opening weekend.
Meetings between these two have been tight in recent years, but always throw up plenty of talking points, so fasten your seatbelts.

Sheffield United vs Leeds United: Team Stats
Leeds have already scored seven goals — and conceded seven — in just two Premier League games so far this season, while Sheffield United are yet to get off the mark.
The Whites continuing their goal glut would go against the grain in this fixture, with just one goal separating these two in each of their last four meetings.
However, we do expect Bielsa’s side to beat Sheffield United for just the second time in six attempts here while, as always with these two, yellow and red cards should be on the menu.
